Launched an Innovative Project in Resource Poor Communities in Zambia
Cooking is more fun with this new stove
Happy Dad's day. Here is heartwarming news from the ground in Zambia. Last month, along with our partner Greenway Appliances, we launched an innovative project that provides clean cooking stoves to vulnerable families. These stoves have a minimal carbon footprint, are almost smoke free, use less fuel, and cook food faster. The stoves were pre-tested for smoke generation, fuel availability/cost, local recipes, cooking speed, and ease of use before the project was launched.
Goals of this project are to improve the health of families, save money on fuel, and income generation. So far, recipients love their new stoves as they are easy to use, smoke generation is almost nil, and they are saving money on fuel costs.
Beneficiaries: 10,000 vulnerable families living in impoverished neighborhoods.
Due to COVID-19, “Safe Park” was cancelled around March 20. However, we have started providing stoves to families who are enrolled in our “Safe Park” program.
Thank you for giving the gift of play to vulnerable children in Zambia.
